One more slot has opened up for this year’s Firefly Music Festival, and the festival organizers are looking towards the local talent! Working with Red Frog Events and REC Philly, Firefly organizers have set out to round off their 2017 lineup with the best regional act. This is the inaugural year for the contest and will hopefully set a trend for other festivals to follow.
Regional artists can apply by submitting an online form. Then if chosen, they will have to go through three rounds in order to win the coveted prize of playing on a Firefly stage. Round 1 will help distinguish the top 25 acts from all the other submissions, Round two will let the fans vote on who they want, and round three will have the final contestants compete live in a showcase in Philadelphia.
Submissions will be accepted from March 31st-April 8th. Requirements state that your band must be local and within a 150 mile radius of the festival grounds. This includes: PA, NJ, DE, NY, MA, CT, and Washington DC.
